UAE football star Omar Abdulrahman leaves Saudi club Al Hilal
UAE international Omar Abdulrahman has left Saudi Arabian giants Al Hilal after failing to agree a new contract, reports Arabian Business.
The 27-year-old Emirati joined Al Hilal from Al Ain last August on a free transfer, but suffered a serious anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury in a match against Al Shabab Riyadh just two months after the signing.
Unfortunately for the young star, he was benched for most of the season and a statement from Al Hilal confirmed the player’s exit.
It said: “The club’s management started talks with the player before our training camp in Europe, as he had asked to renew his contract before that camp even though there was still one month remaining on his contract.
“Because of his previous injury, we wanted to renew the player’s contract after he had passed a medical test. The player passed the medical examination and then demanded an increase in the financial part of the contract.
“We adjusted our offer, and gave him 24 hours to reply, to make sure that we get this matter resolved quickly. We have extended the deadline several times, but we have still to receive a reply.
“We have therefore decided to end the negotiations and we thank Omar [Abdulrahman] for the time he spent with the club, and wish him all the best for the future.”
